    Large part of CNY and ENY got Nam'd on 0z. Probably overdone and a bit too far W but most of the models are showing some really heavy banding potential. Folks in the Catskills and ADK better make sure their generators are in working order @Flying MXZ. Probably going to see some WSW issued by either tonight or following 12z runs tomorrow.



    Big jump west. I’d hold of on watches- too many limiting factors/ variables. But you’re right, could be a heavy wet snow. Nothing has leafed out here yet.

    The front range and Dakotas have amazing springs as well as falls... awesome shorts and T-shirt days to blizzards in the 10's and 20's with no worries of an extended period of shitty 40° rain and overcast. 

    Super windy. Very hot in the summer. Very cold in the winter. Very little average snowfall. Flat. Otherwise it’s awesome.

    Lol. Indeed! I actually lived in the snowbelt of Ontario, Canada for two winters. The people there were dumbfounded when, after a brutal winter, I was still happily shoveling snow during a snowstorm at the end of April. Hah!

    I always get asked, “You must love to ski”, which I now answer, “I do but it has nothing to do with it. I just love snow”

    Pretty nice satellite showing the highly localized lake snows from the past few days.  Quite the strip through wayne county with an impressive drop off just to the NorthEast!  The wispyness of the snow cover East of Huron is also pretty interesting.  


    Valley near Lowville very evident for its lack of snow cover

    That first car in the video has the dumbest driver I've ever seen.  Just hanging out and chilling as if its not an ongoing super dangerous situation.  He then goes from the dumbest person to the luckiest guy in the world at 42 seconds.  If you are ever in a situation like this, get out of your car and get the **** up and off the highway ASAP!

    Total, 100% lack of situational awareness! I’ve seen it in almost every scenario like this. It makes you just wonder how these morons even breath. He almost died for his stupidity. 
    You need to stay in your car and wait for a window and then RUN into the woods to get behind the biggest trees you can find. 
    I hate sharing the road with people like that.

    The flow is out of the NW..We get that wind direction a lot in the winter, obviously..I feel like"majority" of big events (feet) happen east of the lake but you probably see more consistent snow SE of the lake with the constant northerly flows..They obviously have some elevation as well.. The tug can upslope from various wind direction which is why they have it made lol 

    It always astounds me when the tug can cash in on a NW flow. It makes no sense. Lol

    It's not expensive in Cattaraugus County. I assume it's because of the terrain that it's not more developed, and even driving around there in summer can be hair raising, I'm not nearly brave enough to try there in winter. I'm excited for my yearly summer trip through Amish country in Chautauqua... Cherry Creek to Clymer. Beautiful area and a way of living I admire.

    I saw a lot of Amish driving in their buggies. Apparently LED lights are permissible. 
    You gotta get some snow tires bro

  8. NWS has Roc getting 4” as ‘expected’. My P+C for Pittsford is 3-8”.
    I can’t stress enough what a horrible set up this is for Rochester. High winds. Cellular/ diurnal nature of the squalls. Marginal temps.  Trajectory isn’t even good. I’m expecting the big goose egg. Zip. 

    Agree with Buf. Springville will win this easy. Buffalo, IAG, Syracuse all will get nada. Nuisance crap. Fun to watch . 
    Oh, and my normal caveat- I’m terrible at this. Chances are better than average that I’ll be wrong again.
